NP Thyroid question

after being on Naturethroid for several years i read about NP which seemed to be close to the old armour (which i did awesome on) so i thoughrt i would try it. i was taking 6 grains of NT so being that i was going to use the NP sublingually i went down to 5 grains. I'm having symptoms again of hypo so i went up to 5 and a half, no relief. I'm about to go up to 6. is the NP weaker than the NT? i was thinking that since the binding agent wasn't the same it would be used more efficiently by my body. i guess not?

how were you taking your amour.
perhaps go with chew/chop between front teeth) and swallow?

some people dont do well on NP THyroid either. different meds seem to work for different people.

sublingual is how i was taking the armour and the naturethroid, i figured since NP was made to take that way it would work better. I've since started swallowing it and i'm doing way better, weird!

Did you have an iron panel run?

Armour didn't help me until my Ferritin started to get to a normal range.
